Escape to Africa by way of Sonoma County!
Come discover the Sonoma Serengeti. The classic African safari is a trip of a lifetime for intrepid travelers from around the globe - and, it is closer than you think! The entire Safari West experience is a kid-friendly adventure for families to enjoy together. The tours are designed to educate guests of all ages. And families are truly inspired as they learn from and share with one another. At Safari West, they strive to actively promote conservation and environmental education concepts to their guests. The whole experience at Safari West is one of building connections and making discoveries; getting back to basics and enjoying the profound simple pleasures of family and nature that are all too often overlooked. If anything is “not to be missed,” it is that sense of serenity one finds while gazing at graceful giraffe nuzzling her newborn or the surge of raw adventure while witnessing an energetic herd of wildebeest galloping across the horizon.
Clamber aboard a custom outfitted M37 Power Wagons and go on safari. Entertaining and informative guides will take you to meet roving herds of wild antelope, buffalo, and giraffes. You'll stroll beneath the wings of some of the most amazing birds in the world and come face to face with monkeys, cheetahs, and more! Want to walk on the wild side? Then this is the place for you.
While traversing our natural landscape, your experienced guide will share fascinating stories about our collection of over 800 animals, as well as tales of their exotic counterparts in the wilds of Africa. With a little luck, you might find yourself eye-to-eye with a towering, curious giraffe! The adventure continues on foot with an exploration of our lower grounds where you will see and learn about our cheetahs, servals, lemurs, and monkeys such as Colobus, Patas and DeBrazza’s Guenon and view our aviaries, which house a varied international bird collection. Safari Tours are 3 hours long which includes both the walk and the drive.
